Benefits of having a conservatory
Now we’ve demonstrated how to build a conservatory, just why are they so popular? Some of the benefits of conservatories include:
- Extra space
A conservatory can be used to enhance your current living space. If you’re happy in your current home and not looking to move, but would like that extra bit more space – a conservatory is the perfect solution.
Whether you choose to use your new conservatory as a dining room, a storage room, a lounge area or an office – you can enhance your home’s living space by adding another dimension into the house.
- More light
Conservatories are made predominantly of glass – unlike orangeries which are different due to their rooves and the addition of more brickwork rather than windows. Find out more about the difference between conservatories and orangeries. However, with this addition of glass from a conservatory comes an addition of light – bringing more natural light into your home.
- Added value
And of course, any building work to your home is bound to increase the value of the property. It may be an expense at the time, but if and when it comes to selling your home, you’ll be able to reap the rewards of added value at the time of selling. Conservatories add financial value but also personal value to the home – creating a much-loved cosy room to use in whatever way you please.
- Relaxing environment
Whether it’s a cosy retreat for the winter or a summer suntrap, relax in your new conservatory – whatever the season. Dependent on the use of the room, creating an ambience with candles and an electric fire is a great way of harnessing tranquil vibes for your conservatory in the winter. Blinds and appropriate cooling systems are the best way to maximise the use of your conservatory in the summer months.
- Brings the outside inside
As well as providing natural light, added value and a relaxing environment, conservatories are also extremely sociable. If you’re throwing a garden party, a conservatory is the perfect way to bring the outside inside – and even turn it into a bar or a food stand for people to mingle in and out of. Conservatories open up the house but also open up the garden space too – creating a sociable living space outside and in.
